Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

So far I am very impressed by this pack. It handles large loads very nicely. After having the waist belt custom molded, as well as bending the stays to fit my back, it is a perfect fit, which can be made to fit anyone. There are so many small features that make this bag perfect, such as being able to adjust the tension on the aluminum struts in order to prevent sagging at different weights.

The most suprising part of this pack though, is its ability to hold small loads. I also have a 36 liter, and a 50 liter pack, but this 85 liter pack can hold the same amount without gear shifting around. The compression is amazing and lets you carry the amount of gear that you need, large or small.

I would recommend this pack to anyone. I work at an outdoor store, and have tried on every pack you can imagine, and by far this one is the best.

Great pack fits awesome! I can go snowshoe for 8 hours and the only thing sore with 45lbs in my pack is my legs!

Very roomy, lots of pockets and very comfortable waist belt. Would buy again and again!

This is the pack I used while guiding in Colorado for 14 weeks two consecutive summers. After multiple trips in the back country this pack has withstood harsh conditions and braved the elements. The only thing I've had to adjust was the hip belt, but fortunately they are detachable and I down sized from a medium to small belt. The fitting is awesome and the pack wears like a glove. There is plenty of space and I've carried snowshoes and ice-axes with ease. Great week long pack and one I plan on keeping for a long time!

This is a very well thought out backpack that most importantly fits me like a glove. I searched for the perfect hauler for me for about a year and this one exceeded my expectations even over Arc'teryx and Gregory. It carries so well that I can't find a reason to complain even with 40 lbs on my back. The versatility of this pack is great and the customer service people at OSPREY are very nice and informative!!!

I do not have any complaints about this pack. It is comfortable and I can fit whatever I need to in it. It has convienient zippers and pockets. I also love the fact the the top of the pack can be used as a large butt pack. Very well designed and built to last.
